Known for its fine German engineering, the popular Volkswagen Beetle drives onto the Nintendo 64 in this exclusive release from Electronic Arts. With a roster consisting solely of 1999-model Beetles, the game is a mixture of racing and adventure, where players can see how well they perform on the tracks or venture out to discover the many shortcuts and secrets found off the beaten path. Beetle Adventure Racing offers three modes of play: "One Player," consisting of a Single Race, Championship Circuit, and Time Attack; "Two Player," a head-to-head race against a friend; and "Beetle Battle," where up to four players attempt to find six ladybug icons in a choice of power-up filled arenas.
The Championship Circuit has you competing in four increasingly challenging events in one of three cars, each rated in top speed, acceleration, and handling. To unlock eight more vehicles, you'll have to win each circuit by earning more points than the seven drivers forming your competition. Six different courses have you racing along the countryside in Coventry Cove, up and down icy slopes on Mount Mayhem, past dense forests on Inferno Isle, through Egyptian pyramids on Sunset Sands, on urban streets in Metro Madness, and through spooky caves in the Wicked Woods. To save course records and completed circuits, a Controller Pak with four pages free is required. Vibration feedback is also supported with the Rumble Pak accessory.
